Assessor CV or Personal Portfolio
« on: July 23, 2015, 05:12:09 PM »
Your personal portfolio (sometimes we also refer to it as your CV) is a summary of your workplace and educational experience. Typical layout of our personal portfolio.
The purpose of your personal portfolio is to provide evidence to the ETQA department (Education Training Quality Authority) of the relevant SETA that you have the scope (the range of an individual’s knowledge and practical/workplace experience) to either provide training, assess or moderate learners in that field. The rule that normally apply to all SETA’s are: a) two years or more workplace experience or b) a qualification/achievement of a higher level.
The ETQA Managers will follow the following steps.
Identify the unit standards in your application that you require scope for.
They then look at the following:
They first confirm that the unit standards belong to their SETA by looking at the bottom of the unit standard. (see what qualifications its linked to and what SETA’s can approve these qualifications)
Look at the range statement and embedded knowledge on the unit standard for specific instructions on facilitation, assessment or moderation options. (most unit standards don’t have any special requirements)
Identify the different specific outcomes and the assessment criteria on the unit standard and match this to your personal portfolio to confirm you have the scope for the area. Pay special attention to the different terminology used in different companies and on the unit standard. You may want to make reference or include different terminology or terms used on your application or CV/personal portfolio to illuminate confusion.
Proof of your competency and scope will be requested during the following processes.

-Recruitment and appointment of training & educational staff.
-Submission of new skills programmes for approval.
-Training provider accreditation process.
-Site visits conducted by the SETA.
-Form part of the Quality Management Policy for delivery, where the training provider confirm that only qualified and experienced trainers/facilitator will be used to deliver learning material.

-Qualified Assessors must register/link themselves to the different SETA with the unit standards and request approval to assess someone on a specific unit standard. This process is also referred to as “scope”.
-The Assessor can only assess a learner on a given unit standard if you already a) completed the registration/linking process of the relevant SETA and b) received confirmation from the SETA that he have the scope to assess learners in that unit standard.
-Assessors must also request to be linked to a specific training provider. This process must be done in writing and the following must be in place before this process can be completed. [ a) letter of employment or b) memorandum of agreement on file + a signed copy of rules of conduct]
-During the administration process, the learner will be linked to the assessors name in the SETA’s database. The assessor will only appear in the database if a) he/she is registered with that SETA, b) have the scope to assess the unit standard and c) is linked to the Training Provider). The training provider will not be able to certify and upload the learners if these processes were not followed.

-The same process as for Assessor will be followed to registered Moderators.
-As per the requirements for unit standard 115759 must all moderators a) be registered assessors and b) have the scope to moderate in the specific field and c) completed at least 6 assessments for new qualified individuals.
Assessors and moderators can request the required application documents directly from the different SETA’s or download templates from our website on SETA’s may also request all application to re-apply or update their documents after a set period. This period is normally 3 years from registration or linking to the SETA. Process to follow:
 a)      First determine the different unit standards you want to register with.
b)      Then determine the SETA’s they registered with or the SETA you want to use.
c)      Request or download the application form from our website and complete all fields as far as possible.
d)     Include a detailed copy of your CV/personal portfolio.
e)      Include certified copies of your ID book and copies of your achievements in this pack. (date stamped not older than 3 months).
f)       Contact the SETA directly and determine the local of the closest ETQA manager.
